Dec 13
Rohnert Park, CA
Registration Deadline: Dec 13, 2013
Event Type: Seminars and Classes
Description: This course provides an overview of current and upcoming winery compliance issues at the operation, production, labeling, and distribution levels. Topics include: recent regulatory issues with air and water quality; food safety considerations (e.g., Bioterrorism Act, product contamination issues); a primer on direct shipment requirements; a review of federal labeling topics; winery-wholesaler relations and monopoly protection laws; trade practice issues; Proposition 65 warning requirements; and recent legislative changes that affect winery license privileges.
